Meet the product: WorldFirst World Account
Merchants scaling their businesses and looking for exponential growth will be selling on overseas marketplaces. If that’s you then there are three things to consider to maximise your returns:
- Is there demand for the products you supply in the territories you are considering;
- Do you have logistics solutions in place to ship the product and handle returns;
- How do you get paid from consumers using a foreign currency.
If you have the first two figured out then the WorldFirst World Account is an ideal solution to assist repatriating payments with significant cost savings compared to the marketplace’s own offerings as well as making payments to overseas suppliers.
We spoke to WorldFirst to find out more about the World Account:
